Homework Help: Resultant of three forces about a point O

  1. Oct 30, 2012 #1
    My question is to find the resultant just take the x,y components of each force, find the magnitude by squaring them and taking the square root. My question is after doing that how would i find the perpendicular and horizontal distances.

    My teacher put a study guide for our test and it said resultant of 3 forces about a point, 2-D, 2-D moments.

    Maybe i misinterpreting what he really wants?

    The picture is not the actual problem just an example.
